Jenkins has been around for a long time now. Located in a small town in central MA. It is a destination point. The food is prepared expertly by a fine chef. No matter what you order, it is outstanding.

The Inn and grounds were lovely. Intimate dining room (albeit a bit dated). Considering we were the first couple there, service was a little slow. Excellent cheese and crackers and entrees were good.

I wish I had been hungrier or that I was close to home to take home a doggy bag! I started with the Lobster Bisque which was very tasty. A bit too creamy for me but still good. Then the biscuits are to die for!!! Salad was salad - but at least it comes with the meal and you don't... More

Have been here a few times. It is worth the trip (we live 30 minutes away). The food is unfailingly good, the hosts are friendly and informative, and the ambience is very pleasant. One of those few restaurants that I don't have anything negative to report.

The Jenkins Inn is for me my all time favorite place to eat in the area. I have never had a bad or mediocre or even just a good meal. Each and every meal was flawless. The menu offers something for everyone and there are always nightly specials. Presentation of food a feast for the eyes alone. Desserts are baked... More

If you don't know how to get to Barre please find out! This charming inn and restaurant is wonderful. Food is delicious and prepared to order. It is so cozy that you fell as if you are in someone's home. The owners who service you are experts! We hope to stay there, overnight, soon.

The only flaw at Jenkin's Inn, is if you go to stay, or to dine, you will compare every other Inn and every other restaurant to them, and very, very few will measure up. Joe and David are the best. Last night, we dined there again, and they made room for us at the last minute, and again, it was... More

This time around my meals were breakfast. There's something for everyone to eat, whether it's eggs, oatmeal or gluten free. After our dinner function, I invited a group back for wine in the library. It's very quaint and relaxing.

We visit this B and B for dinner frequently. David is an excellent cook and their are always new items on the menu. Do not forget to have a dessert that Joe has whipped up - it will be made of something fresh and in season. Romantic.
